Democracy and the Constitution
UKIP’s Policies on Democracy and the UK Constitution
- UKIP will overcome the unfairness of MPs from devolved nations voting on English-only issues.
- UKIP supports the recall of MPs as was originally promised in the Coalition Agreement, whereby 20% of the electorate in a constituency must sign a recall petition within eight weeks. The approval of MPs will not be required to initiate a recall petition.
- UKIP will introduce the Citizens’ Initiative to allow the public to initiate national referendums on issues of major public interest.
